First my hair. I have been having fantastic luck so far (a lot better than my first go at it). I have not washed for a little over a week and my hair has been great. Just rinsing with the baking soda and water mix every third day. My hair is soft and very clean looking the first day after rinsing, the second day it looks fine, and the third I have to wear a pony tail or a hat. Then I rinse and it’s nice, clean and soft again. What is interesting, is that I have a bit more wave at the end of my hair than I used to. My hair has always been very straight with a teeny hint of a wave when it’s long. Now, it has a noticeable wave and curl at the tips. I like it.
The Oil cleansing method (OCM) has been working well too! I only clean my face this way every other day. On my off days, I just rinse with warm water. So far, no major break outs or anything weird. My hubby bought me some Sweet Cheeks moisturizer for Mother’s day, which is a bit similar to the olive oil and castor oil mixture I made except it is scented with lavender and rose oil. Plus, it is a bit thicker and less messy. I really like it.
My herbs and tomato plant have been thriving (you can see it before here). I am so excited to see 10 little green tomatoes growing and another 10 or so flowers. Yay! I can’t wait to eat my first cherry tomato. I even have a gulf ball size pomegranate growing and lots of fruiting buds.
